I didn’t know what has gotten into me, why did I crave for something sweet and something cold today.
All day long, I’ve been fighting myself for this unusual uncalled for craving for the sweet ice. Also, I’m thinking of getting myself a tub of ice cream.
What bothers me is that, I haven’t gotten my pay yet from work and I haven’t paid the bills. So it would be a mortal sin to succumb to my cravings with all these unsettled.
Every hour this afternoon, I’ve asked my dad whether the local ice cream vendor or the ice scramble guy came across our street, to my dismay he always says no.
What’s with the hot weather anyway? Or is it because something’s bothering me (I don’t know what) that’s why I’m craving for any of those?
Err. Conclusion is that it’s because of both.
When I finally gave up in this craving, suddenly, God answered my prayers. The ice scramble guy came. Take note: It is quite unusual for him to appear in our area this late. I mean, it’s already past 6. This is the first time I saw him without the sun up there.
Anyway, I had my serving of the long waited cold sweet ice and it was fulfilling. It’s not the best quality ice scramble out there but this is just the right thing I need right now.
To give you a background, I crave for something cold and sweet whenever I feel lonely or sad. Mostly, I don’t know the reason for such feelings or it’s just that I don’t acknowledge it as a fact to become the reason for being this miserable.
Today, this serving of clean shaven ice with the rich delicate syrup topped with white powdered milk is my savior from this loneliness inside.
Now I’m trying to figure out, what should I eat next? :)
